For Tuesday night’s 15-game slate, I am going to do something a little different with my home run predictions write up. I’m going to give a pair of hitters from four different teams who hit close together in their lineups, something I like to call “Suited Connectors”. This method gives you not only pair of hitters capable of hitting a home run but also some additional upside of a mini-stack to double-down on RBI and run points. The hitters on today’s list also offer some value that allows you to pay up into the strong mid-tier of pitching options on the slate.
Prices included for FanDuel and DraftKings to help find where the best value may be and positions are based on FanDuel.
So with that here is who will be swinging for the fences today…
Yankees vs Anibal Sanchez
Sanchez has allowed a 2.51 HR/9 and a 45.6% hard hit rate to righties this season.
C – Gary Sanchez (NYY) (FanDuel: $3,600 / DraftKings: $5,100) – Sanchez has a .216 ISO at home versus righties this year and
SS – Didi Gregorius (NYY) (FanDuel: $3,600 / DraftKings: $4,100) – Gregorius is 3-for-8 with a homer off Sanchez in his career and has a .236 ISO versus righties this season.
Longshot – Matt Holliday (NYY) (FanDuel: $2,500 / DraftKings: $3,500) – Holliday has been cold as his price reflects but he has gone 8-for-17 with a pair of homers off Sanchez in his career.
Rays vs Mike Fiers
Fiers has pitched better recently but has still given up four homers over his last four starts and has allowed 2.26 HR/9 to lefties this season.
